THEM: Are you still doing that "Bitcoin" thing?

ME: Yes, It's called Steem.

THEM: Crypto is Dead, I saw on the news, Bitcoin was an interesting idea that failed. Get over it.

ME: It's not ded, it's resting.

THEM: See, you've even forgotten how to spell. Look, you are a professional you make six-figure salaries and your resume' is getting stale, you need to get back in the office, find some normies, meet some real-life people.

ME: I know real people, and besides I still have a "Normie Job".

THEM: How many people did you speak to today face-to-face?

ME: ehhh, one.

THEM: How much much money did you make today?

ME: What do you mean?

THEM: In Bitcoin, how much money did you actually earn today that you have access to and could spend?

ME: I don't know, maybe $1-$2 in Steem.

THEM: It's worse than we thought.

ME: Look, I can pay my Bills, I have some money and I think this is important work.

THEM: Stunned Looks of Disbelief.

ME: We are going to free the people from evil governments.

THEM: Now sobbing, "What has happened to you?"

ME: It's going to change how the world interacts with money, it's like the Internet, most people don't even understand how much it is going to change the world. Remember when you mocked me for taking the job with that little Internet Company?

THEM: This is not the same


THEM: How and When? You've been doing this for 2.5 years, how much have things changed? It's time for you to get your head out of the clouds and get back to business.

ME: Begins singing,

They tried to make me go to rehab
I said, "no, no, no"

This conversation never happened, or if it did I played both THEM and ME, and the conversation was only in my head.


Sidenote: I just got back from out of town and I will check with Crim and Julia on the judging for the Dudeior Contest.
